May is National Foster Care Awareness Month, a time to recognize foster parents, families, volunteers, mentors, and child welfare professionals who provide loving homes and resources to children and youth in foster care.
Did you know that close to 700 children enter the foster care system every day and currently there are more than 440,000 children and youth in foster care in the United States? We encourage you to find a way to get involved in their lives. Below are a few ways you too can support foster children in our community during National Foster Care Awareness month and beyond:
- Donate for Give STL Day and help send our families to Trout Lodge this summer!
- Volunteer to make and deliver a meal to a foster family. Give a family a night off from cooking.
- Host a collection to support foster families. Help us re-stock the Angel Depot for our families.
